  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Our original cruise itinerary was changed via Royal Caribbean cuz they decided to take our boat out of service for maintenance. Left with no choice due to the dates we had locked in we were forced to pick this boat.

The crew and staff were beyond great!!

BUT the boat needs to be gutted and completely overhauled. Its old and stinky. Everything smelled like pee. The boat only has 2 bars inside and both of them had "entertainment" after dinner. A piano in the schooner bar that played boring lounge music. It was so dull and dreary the place felt like a funeral. The centrum had the R bar with a live band that played the same dull and boring music. The musicians looked like they wanted to throw themselves off the ship.

You know its bad when the only good music you can find to dance to is during karaoke and most of the singers are horrible.

I'm 43 yrs old. I don't want to have to wait till 11 to go to the club to dance. i want live upbeat music all the time.

Royal Caribbean needs to change their music and entertainment on the boat. Get with the times its not 1940 anymore!!!!

After 7 nights i couldn't wait to get end the cruise.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

New Orleans

We love New Orleans. The garden district is so much nicer than the French Quarter.


Miami is a nightlife or beach town. There is nothing to do in the daytime. Getting around is not easy you have to uber or taxi everywhere.


Lots of shopping and beach time. If you dont like the beach then you have to shop.

Key West

Again beach or shopping. the weather was cold and crappy for our whole cruise so we didn't do much but wonder around.
